Wow, 721 Mustang enthusiasts with no muffler/Exhuast system experience? Curious. I ended up paying $875 for a four cat system. Still has a nice v8 rumble but considerably more quiet. Now to see if will pass an emissions test.

Update 3/20/2016: I first want to thank everyone on the forum who has offered advice or viewed my thread. Its been a while since I created this thread to help all owners by sharing my aweful dealership experience (at Bozard Ford). Please be careful when leaving your car at a dealership! The problems with my 2015 Mustang GT have put me through hell. I paid $37k+ for my 2015 Mustang and it still has transmission problems (Ford hasn't fixed!) Ford can do the right thing, but they choose not to.
If you wish to help everyone, all mustang owners, please reply to this thread or view my experience video below. Every view counts!:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VbbwzeOZhNo
Thank you once again for your support of the good fight.

I found this old neglected girl on E Bay, from Alabama, bought her, brought her home, started to collect parts, and am starting to restore her as close to factory as i can, even though it was only a shell, i managed to buy a proper year 4 speed top loader transmission and a 69/351-2V engine...
The gauge and clock panel were a bit harder to find, and as for the high backs and rear fold down, as well as the floor and roof, she will be a work in progress, lol any advice and helpful tips are greatly appreciated......
Although a tree fell on her, crushing the roof and taking out the windshield, she was only plated for 9 years...
the roof, front brace and floor are toast, the rest of her is solid, rear frame rails, trunk and quarters, even if damaged from a rear end light impact..
i decided on a full floor replacement which i should have next month and then fix the roof, and continue with the body, front disc conversion, rebuild the engine and tranny, and on and on, lol...if it were easy, everyone would drive a 69 Mach 1

Hello everyone: I am new to this forum. Just purchased a 2000 GT V8 4.6. It is way louder than I would like and needs new catalytic converters in order to pass an emissions test here in Portland, Oregon. The car has two Flowmaster mufflers, but no cats. I have been told by a couple of shops that the car, which was originally sold in California, had SIX catalytic converters. However, American Muscle's diagram of the typical exhaust system shows only two, plus two mufflers.
One shop told me over the phone that two cats would do it and they would charge $500 installed. Another shop told me over the phone that they would need to replace the whole system for $1500. Still another told me $600 over the phone for two cats, but when I arrived, they said I would need four at $800 installed. I did tell this latter shop I needed to pass an emissions test and wanted to quiet it down to a pleasant rumble, but am I being hosed? How many cats do I really need to be legal in most states, and will cats indeed quiet the car enough that my neighbors won't want to kill me when I start it up? Thanks!

1966 Mustang Coupe.
After checking the oil pressure(good steady pressure), changing the oil sensor and oil/filter.
Checked engine compression, #3 was a little low at 120 the rest were 155 to 135.
Drove her this weekend few hundred miles without issue, so beats the heck out of me.
I'm going to order a spring, summer is on the way.
You only need the spring in the lower hose, since it's the one that's subjected to suction on the inlet side of the water pump.
If it collapses due to that suction the water can't flow through the radiator and the top hose will pressurize, as you described. You can probably find a spring at your local auto parts store (take the lower hose in with you so you get the right diameter and length) or you can order one from a Classic Mustang parts supplier like National Parts Depot. You didn't say what year your Mustang is but if it's a 65-75 small-block V8 the NPD part number is 8A286-1A, $5.10
